of questions about george bush politicizing terror warnings, should we be asking those questions now? >> we don't have in the last four and a half years a lot of evidence of barack obama doing the same thing as bush and cheney. so we don't need to be spectacle of these warnings on those facts alone. >> david: most congressmen have spoken out in favor of this, but they don't know much necessarily about what the nsa is doing. there was a big story in the guardian, saying members are being rejected in trying to find out what is going on. so are lawmakers sort of saying stuff that they don't know what they are saying. >> lawmakers, as you know, david like to follow the pack and take the safest position, and the safest position is say let's trust these are bad guys, sure they want to get us. >> stephanie: let's turn to some of the fighting among the parties right now. last week rand paul and chris christie, they had a big fight. they knocked heads. this week mitch mcconnell fighting off his primary challenger. he has even created a website saying bailout bevin calling this challenge a probailout kin
and george w. bush's approach in the war on terror. i will agree with rick on one point, and that is we do live in a post-benghazi world, especially when it comes to embassy protection. and there are a lot of families of people who were killed at benghazi that wish they'd gone on this sort of alert. so this is, this is, benghazi is the 800-pound elephant that nobody's speaking about on this matter. that's why so many embassies have been shut down. but i don't know that there would be a lot of people saying it's because of the tim duncan ti of barack obama but rather the mistakes made in benghazi. >> look, drone policy is one policy. what we've seen is an administration that has refused to confront radical islam, that embraced the muslim brotherhood in egypt and now you see the consequences of that and what's happened there. they have not been -- they won't even use the word "terror." they have withdrawn politically from the engagement and fight. yeah, sure, they're going after bad guys with drone programs, but that is not a comprehensive policy -- >> but, rick, i have not, if you've watche
